Additional information on hiring a professional painting
The following article details what to
look for before hiring a painting contractor. This information
will help you in the selection of a painting contractor.
Furthermore it will also provide necessary information to
the quality of the painting contractor, as related to workmanship,
timeliness and materials.
The intent of this article is to provide property owners
with guidelines on how to properly qualify a house painter.
It is critical for the property owner to hire the best available
house painter to do the work and then provide the tools
for the house painter to do the job right with the highest
possible level of quality.
Property owners are often driven by price, not capability,
in their search for a painting contractor. This approach
encourages an unqualified residential painter to submit
unrealistically low bids for jobs that are beyond their
technical capabilities. Frequently, the owner is the
one to suffer through protracted project schedules, poor
workmanship and the coating system's failure or reduced
Whenever possible, the surface preparation and painting
portion of a job should be given to a paint company specifically
qualified to meet the varied aspects of the owner's scope
of work. Two key areas for review are suitable/successful
experience and a technical capability for the type of work
or coating system specified.
Although some homeowners do their own exterior painting,
many others hire a professional house painter to do the
work. If you are one of them, don't leave the selection
of a painting contractor to chance. After all, your exterior
paint job is important protection for the enormous investment
you have in your home.
Ask about the materials they plan to use. Will the painting
contractor allow you to specify the paint you prefer? More
importantly, does the paint company recommend top quality
paint? Top quality acrylic latex exterior paint can last
for up to 10 years compared to only three or four years
for ordinary paint, so you should favor the residential
painter who uses the highest quality materials.
Former customers are an excellent source of information
about professional painters. Call these individuals and
ask if they were pleased with the work of that painting
contractor. A reliable house painter will usually guarantee
that the paint will not peel, chip, blister or chalk excessively
for at least one year. Have the company agree that if any
of these conditions occur, the problems will be corrected
free of charge.
You and your painting contractor should both sign a written
contract that spells out important details. At a minimum,
it should include specifics on surface preparation, the
exact paint to be applied, and payment terms for the house
We hope this information will help you select a painting
contractor that will perform the repairs to your home in
a professional manner.
